We’re not movie critics, but we are movie-a-holics. We watch tons and tons of movies (that’s what you do when it’s freezing in New York and you don’t want to leave your apartment, natch). As such, we’ve assembled a very unofficial and unscientific list of our favorite films of 2011. If you missed some of these, no worries! You can catch ‘em all on DVD or Netflix in 2012. We’ve all got our specialties: Jess loves a strong leading lady, I love a documentary and Amelia loves (everybody say it with me) Ryan Gosling. Find something to watch — and love — in 2012. And tell us: what’s your favorite movie of this past year?

Lately we’re feeling bow ties, especially as worn by the super cool Janelle Monae. The key to wearing a bow tie is balance. Rocking a bright red number? Then keep the rest of your outfit neutral. A polka dot bow tie? Go for a solid shirt and dark pants. One fun option: if you’re wearing a floral bowtie, pair it with a stripey shirt — but make sure to keep your bottom neutral. Check out 10 cheeky, fun lady bow tie options.
Well Jared Leto, try as you might, you’ve made it to 40. That’s not very rock star of you, of course, but here we are — a 40-year-old man wearing sunglasses indoors and strutting around in pleather and sequins like it’s no big deal. It seems, Mr. Leto, that you’re primed to be America’s next Steven Tyler. Can a stint on a popular reality singing show be far behind? Either way, enjoy your special day as only you can – probably by bleaching your hair and decadently drinking bottle upon bottle of Patron. We’ll busy ourselves by looking at your worst fashions.
